LC Story: Story

I was in bed sleeping and the phone rang and awakened me. It was my husband, who is a pilot. He was saying "I'm OK, I'm OK" I asked him what he was talking about, he told me to turn on the television. As the picture appeared on the screen the second plane was hitting the WTC.

LC Story: Memory

The feeling of complete and utter loss, not knowing what to do, or how to do it.

LC Story: Affects

9/11 is our wedding anniversary and 9/12 my birthday. While this seems so petty compared to the loss that was suffered by so many that horrific day, two special days in my life will be forever colored with sadness.
